UC San Francisco (UCSF) at Zuckerberg San Francisco General (SFGH) is proposing to build a modern academic research building on the SFGH campus along 23rd Street between Vermont and Utah Streets. The facility has a projected completion date of 2019.
The UCSF - SFGH partnership is known worldwide for adopting pioneering health interventions that translate research discoveries into better clinical care. At SFGH, UCSF physician-scientists are guided by compassionate clinical care that is grounded in research, ranging from understanding the fundamental causes of disease to developing new treatment models for patients within their communities. That research is dictated by the needs of our patients, especially those from high-risk or underserved populations, with a direct impact on the health of San Francisco citizens as a whole. A Programming Committee has been convened and will begin work in January 2016.

Partners in Research and Patient Care
Since 1864, Zuckerberg San Francisco General and the UCSF School of Medicine have worked in close collaboration to provide health care services for the people of San Francisco.
SFGH is one of UCSF’s primary teaching hospitals, where medical residents train under UCSF faculty and City staff. Today, more than 2,000 UCSF physicians and staff from all four UCSF professional schools work side-by-side at the hospital with 3,500 employees of the San Francisco Department of Public Health.
UCSF at SFGH offers the triple benefit of education, patient care and research. Each of these endeavors is world-class, evident in the high number of teaching awards, research grants and professional commendations showered upon the UCSF team at SFGH. Best of all, the teaching, research and clinical care are not isolated, but work together providing real-time benefit to patients and state of the art opportunities for physicians and other providers.
